Block 1 Details ~ P2 Quilt-Along

Here are some photos of how I put Block 1 together.  It took me 2.5 hours with some minor/small {think 2 month-old baby small} breaks.  For more details on this block and more details, check out the Week 1 post on P2’s Blog

100_0422First Step… I used my 1/4” foot to make sure I was getting my seam allowance right.  I lined up the edge of the foot with the diagonal line, and off I went.  This part went fairly quickly.  It actually worked just like on Fon's and Porter’s Love of Quilting show… imagine… they know what they are doing on that show, LOL!




Triangles pressed open.

Here are the triangles pressed open.  You can see how the block is going to look when finished.  This is where I stopped and rechecked the P2 site to make sure all the triangles/fabrics where in the correct locations.  I am using the reverse side of the tan pawprints fabric to mute the pattern on the fabric since it is my ‘white’ fabric.


Then I matched the blocks up and stacked them so I could chain stitch them.  This method does save time, but make sure to double check you are stitching the right blocks on the right sides.  Amazingly enough I did not have to tear out any seams when piecing this block together {I consider that a minor miracle}.

These two came out almost perfect.




This one… not so much.


And like any ‘great’ piece of art… the finished block is displayed on the refrigerator for all to admire.



  1. i wish i knew how to use my sewing machine. i am always impressed with people who can sew so beautifully!!

  2. oh i went to reply to your comment on my blog, i always like to reply via email and your email address is not enabled.

    did you know that?

    this means that you spend so much time leaving lovely comments on people's blogs and they have no way of responding to a question or thanking you for stopping by or just continuing the conversation...because instead of your email address all they see is "no-reply comment".

    sad right?

    you can fix that if you like.

    just go to your dashboard, click edit profile and click show email address and then click save profile.


    and i PROMISE if you change this blogging will get even better and become even more fun!

  3. You did a great job! I would love to do a small quilt...some day! I think I am intimidated about a big project! But you've got a great idea to enjoy it! ♥

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Christmas is coming...

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
